‘We must reach a level of consciousness where we actually feel that we are a part of the Lord and that we do not exist outside of God. For this is the reality – no one can exist outside of the Lord. He created us, he nourishes us, and gives us life. Some people might say, ‘The Creator? But I have nothing to do with him! I am a free and independent individual!’ Well, that is the biggest mistake. No creature is independent. Those who, in their conscience, cut their link with the Creator in order to be independent, actually cut themselves off from the Source of life, they become no more than a grain of dust.
Try to understand that you do not exist as a separate entity; only he, the Creator, exists, and through you, he accepts to be small, weak and sickly. If you meditate in this way for years, until you feel that you are nothing but a part of the Creator, gradually, you will truly become one with him.’
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
A Prayer and a Formula
The master gave us a related formula to use during our meditations on light which I really love. It is a humbling reminder that we do not exist outside of God. With him we are a tiny point of light, without him just ‘a grain of dust’.
‘I am a particle of the particles of the incandescent soul’.
He also gave us a longer prayer which is found in ‘A New Earth’:
Lord, grant that I may disappear in your immensity and your eternity. Take my place, and dwell within me. Manifest yourself through my intelligence as wisdom. through my heart as love, through my will as power. And may the kingdom of God and his justice be established on earth without delay and the golden age reign amongst all human beings. For the glory of God. Amen.
